A web site requires FOUR ELEMENTS:
1) SPACE for the files, graphics, and other information to reside. Normally, this space is rented from a web hosting company.
2) DOMAIN NAME (Your Website "address"- like www.lmfweb.com). Domain names are purchased on an annual basis and must be renewed each year in order to be registered (so the Internet will know where to look for your site).
3) INFORMATION files that tell and/or show visitors to your site your message, product, or information.
4) STRUCTURE AND LINKS to enable visitors to navigate to different areas of the site and to understand what they are seeing or reading. This is the job of the website designer. Using your input and information he designs a site that will convey your site in a pleasing way to the world.
